Re: new here

almost forgot... the whole reason i came here was to get some info on thrust washers in the clutch assy., the last guy who rebuilt my bike couldnt get the right answer from anybody. so theres an extra thrust washer on the backside of the basket. heres my problem, cant get to it. everytime i put anykind of torque on the on the nut that holds the basket, it just spins. i was told to hold the basket and try. bad idea [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img], its over torqued. i was told by the "master mechanic" down here at my local yamaha that i needed a "special tool" to hold the basket in place when i put torque on the nut... not going to give some clown that told me he hasnt seen a bike like mine in 20 years 80 bones to do the job [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img]. is there anyway to keep the basket in place so i can remove the nut?
